My son turns 8 years old today. Yes. He is a new year’s baby. His birthdate is 01-01-01. On that day, Kansas State beat Tennessee in the Cotton Bowl, we drove to the hospital and had our first child. It was one of the best days of my life. His name is Ariston, which is a Greek word that means “best.” We think he’s pretty special, but of course we’re biased. Happy Birthday Ariston! And a very Happy New Year to all my runner friends in the blogosphere!
The smoking thing in the picture is his volcano desert.
